Tips For How to Brew Lavender Tea
Lavender tea can be made using tea bags or loose flowers. The flower buds can be fresh from your garden or dried for added shelf life.
We always recommend using loose tea blends rather than tea bags. Loose teas offer fresher flavor and tend to contain better quality flowers and buds than tea bag varieties.
There are a few things to keep in mind when brewing lavender tea using flowers from your garden. It’s best to cultivate them using organic methods to avoid contamination with chemicals and harsh fertilizers.
These chemicals can find their way into your tea and cause negative side effects. It’s also a good idea to grow lavender flowers away from main roads and other potential environmental contaminants.
No known precautions. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications. People who are allergic to lavender flowers or similar flowering plants should avoid drinking lavender tea. People who are sensitive to these flowers may develop an allergic reaction that includes difficulty breathing, skin rash, and throat irritation.
